I’m a vegetarian so I knew I would love these burritos. My family however, is not. Wasn’t sure how they would react to these, but they loved them! I think the sweetness of the potatoes mixed with the smoky heat of the cumin and chili powder went together really well. I had to omit the cayenne, and use my milder chili powder to suit the crowd I was cooking this for. When I make these just for me, I will add the full heat back, amybe even a little more! Overall, I think this was a great vegetarian alternative to one of my favorite Mexican foods.
Very flavorful and hearty. I'm so glad I tried this recipe. I had a few baked sweet potatoes I needed to use, and this fit the bill nicely. My only change is I halved the recipe, and I substituted chicken broth for the water.
I'm so glad I tried this recipe, this is a really good burrito! I thought the sweet potato might overwhelming, but it complimented the beans. And speaking of beans, I never would have thought to use kidney beans in a burrito. I always use pinto or black. I really liked the texture and flavor. I sprayed the burritos with cooking spray before baking and they turned golden and lightly crisp which made them feel more special than the usual burritos I make. Topped them with sour cream, salsa, green onion and cilantro. Yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll be making these again.
